Special Issue: Historical Data Collection on Natural Hazard and Climate Variability. Preface

Abstract : A yearly session adressing the link between historical data and natural hazard and risk assessments is organized within the General Assembly of the European Geophysical Society since 1999. A special issue contains a selection of presentations given to the session NH4 "The use of historical data in natural hazard and risk assessment", organized within the 27th assembly of the EGS in Nice on 23 April 2002. The session was convened by Michel Lang, Paola Albini and Thomas Glade. A total of 20 oral communications and poster were presented, from which five are included in this special volume.The presented set of papers focuses on two topics: the methodological framework for historical data collection on floods, earthquakes, landslides and snow avalanches, and the understanding of past variations over the last millennium. The volume gives three presentations on historical floods, an example of a historical analysis of seismic events and finally an overview of a database on natural hazard in a mountainous area.
